You will have better subject isolation and less DOF with FX compared to DX. Are you unhappy with your bokeh?

It will be faster but going to FX you will already gain speed as you can shoot similar quality with higher iso's compared to DX

possible? not always the case and likely hard to see in an actual photo.

I do like my 50 1.4 but if I started with a 1.8 not sure I would switch. I would suggest after you upgrade camera see how you like the 50 you have.

On the other hand sometimes you just want something and if you can swing it, who am I to dissuade you?
